Everything about this story is just the worst.

pbump:

A couple in South Carolina apparently used a sex offender registry as a kill list.

"The sheriff said Moody recounted what he told Charles Parker: ‘You think I’m here to rob you. I’m not here to rob you. I’m here to kill you because you are a child molester.’”

Former South Carolina Gov. Sanford wins election to 1st district House seat

Former Governor Mark Sanford is being projected as winner of the race for South Carolina’s first district House seat, defeating his Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Colbert Busch. Sanford, 52, was dogged by his infamous abandonment of his post as Governor in June of 2009, when he vanished to Argentina to engage in an extramarital affair. He ran on a very overt platform of redemption and asking forgiveness, however, and SC-1’s largely conservative voters seem to have been in a forgiving mood — Sanford is back from the Appalachian Trail, and he’s headed to the United States House.

It’s neck and neck in the race to represent South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District

  • 47-46 the lead former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford holds over his opponent, Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch, one day before the election that will determine which candidate will represent the state’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Just two weeks ago, Sanford trailed Colbert Busch by 9 points. Guess that Larry Flynt endorsement went a long way, huh? source

An affair to remember: A dating site that specializes in orchestrating extramarital affairs has chosen the notoriously infidelitous Mark Sanford as its poster boy, spending $6,000 to erect this billboard in South Carolina, where the former governor is trying to convince people to forget his 2009 affair (and subsequent dereliction of duty) and elect him to the state’s open congressional seat. In an interview with Politico, the founder of the website suggested, without a shred of believability, that he actually wants Sanford to win the election. (Photo credit: AshleyMadison.com) source

Poster child: After a rather terrible week that sent his congressional campaign into free fall, former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford took to the streets to host a mock debate, if you want to call it that, with a poster of Nancy Pelosi. His reasoning was that his opponent, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, wouldn’t commit to more than one debate, so he’d instead debate the leader of Busch’s party. It’s kind of a cute idea, but as is often the case with Sanford, it may serve to remind voters of things the GOP is trying to forget. Also, we can’t help but feel bad for the poor woman who had to hold up that cutout. (Photo credit: @stefaniebainum/Twitter) source

Sanford’s latest mess: Mark Sanford, who’s currently running for Congress in South Carolina, is in legal trouble with his ex-wife Jenny Sanford, who’s accusing him of trespassing on her property and entering her house without permission on multiple occasions. Sanford has admitted to doing so once, in order to watch a football game with his son; the national Republican party has responded by pulling its funds from Sanford’s race. Sanford gained national prominence in 2009 when, as governor, he abandoned his post for a week without explanation in order to have an extramarital affair in Argentina (Photo credit: AP).
